In the spirit of the original Fantasy Alarm tag-line, "Never start an injured player again," we felt it was necessary to keep you fantasy football players as up to date as possible with all the news regarding NFL game cancellations and postponements due to COVID-19. Not that all of these players involved are injured, but when one team is infected, as we've seen with the Tennessee Titans, they drag down their opposition for the week. Those of you who lost Ben Roethlisberger , JuJu Smith-Schuster and James Conner know what we're talking about.

Each week, we will post the latest information so you are able to track what has happened, which teams are most directly affected and whether or not the games will be played during the current week's scoring period. This was, if you see a team or, more specifically, one of your players affected, you can head over to our Waiver Wire article or Injury Report and figure out which players will be worth your while for replacements. The NFL DFS Playbook will also have COVID-19 updates as well.
